I discovered Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada when I started to donate to the Camp Foxtail campaign. On my tour of the remote camp I could envision the smiles and laughter and even the challenges a girl goes through during her week stay. I think it's amazing the organization helps with scholarships to girls who might not be able to afford camp. I worked at a kids camp for three years and it is amazing to see how they grow and discover themselves year after year.

The Great!

Sending a girl to camp through my donation allows me to rediscover my camp passion! Knowing I am helping girls grow strong through Girl Scouts puts a smile on my face!

Help send more girls to camp, who by no fault of their own can afford to go to camp.

I was a girl scout for six years growing up in Las Vegas. I left the organization due to my interests at the time, but always had fond memories of my time spent there.

I was so happy to learn about the Thin Mint Sprint several years later - it was a great way to get the community involved
with the girl scouts and for a chance for me to once again touch base with this organization. I also appreciate how it involved healthful living through running and walking activities - It's great to enjoy all the girl scout cookies (which I did at the end!), but it's important that the kickoff to the selling season was with activity as the two should go hand in hand.

Kudos to the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada finally bridging the gap of their No. 1 selling/fund-raising initiative with activity to promote healthy living. It's good for the women and girls in Girl Scouts as well as for the community.

Throughout my life I have taken with me the lessons I learned in Girl Scouts. From always helping those in need to how to start a fire when going camping. I am now a board member of a children's health organization and think part of that mentality came from my time in Girl Scouts. I also improved my time in running at the Thin Mint Sprint, so that was really nice and encouraging!

I can't think of any at the moment.

I became a Girl Scout in Southern Nevada when I was 6 years old. I participated all the way through my senior year in high school. As a senior I earned my Gold Award, the highest level award you can earn in Girl Scouting. Girl Scouts builds strong girls that know what they want out of life. It gives girls the courage to go after what they want. The program builds their confidence and character. It shows them the world is bigger than just their school or city and asks them what they will do to change it. I am who I am today and have succeeded in life due to the skills and relationships I built in Girl Scouts.

The Great!

Want to make a difference in a girls life, but don’t have a lot of time to spend?  Girl Scouts offers many opportunities for volunteers to mentor girls in their field of expertise.  Are you a business executive with expertise in banking, marketing, or human resources - you might enjoy sharing your knowledge at our Girl Scout Leadership Summit for high school aged girls.

Are you in the construction industry?  Consider participating in Ms. Fix It, a one day event to give elementary aged girls a hands-on look at careers in the construction industry.

If you have a talent or area of expertise, we have a short-term opportunity to pair you with a girl who shares your interest and could benefit from your mentoring!
